General Deadly by sydsilvey 5/11/2015 written by sydsilvey 5/11/2015 What’s more deadly? A gun or a thought? A gun gives you the opportunity, the thought pulls the trigger. thoughttrigger 4 comments 0 Email Related posts i shouldn’t have come back 9/25/2021 I’m in a mental hospital now 9/24/2021 back here yet again. 9/24/2021 The solution is in my closet 9/24/2021 “we blame the people that did it/the people... 9/23/2021 I don’t even… 9/23/2021 Soulmates as Teenagers 9/23/2021 WHY DO I ALWAYS HAVE SUCH ASSHOLE NEIGHBORS? 9/23/2021 I AM GOD 9/23/2021 I’m so tired 9/22/2021 4 comments cephalus 5/11/2015 - 9:33 pm Deadly to whom, to what? Guns have killed thousands, if not millions of thoughts. But, yes, as you ask, didn’t thoughts cause those guns to fire? Are we all just biomechanical machines? Like guns?

Thoughts can’t hurt other people, and just because we think something doesn’t mean we have to act on it. Behaviour is what kills, and guns just make it that much easier.

They don’t have to exhibit those behaviors. Is it any different from the masses that play call of duty? I’m not so sure any more. Not sure if this is what the OP was getting at. Just asking questions. For me the lines seem to be ever increasing blurred.

Someone has to locate the target and press the button or whatever it is they do. They can’t do it by shear thought alone (at least, not yet, but who knows maybe that’s coming down the pipeline sometime in the future, yikes). As an interesting aside, drone weapon operators are vulnerable to developing PTSD. I would have thought they would be more or less immune to it because they don’t physically experience the violence and destruction, but apparently not.
